On February 19th, former Army Medic and ASOP Director Charles Barocas returned to Ft. Sam Houston, TX to train 20 Army Medics in Orthopedic Casting. This Introduction to Casting Workshop may lead to an Army wide program to add additional training time to Army Medic Training Curriculum to allow a smoother transition between Combat Medic and civilian Orthopedic Allied Professional. There are 10,000 Orthopedic Offices, 7,000 Emergency Departments and 12,000 new urgent care facilities. Former Army Combat Medics make the perfect employee for these facilities. ASOP will be there to provide specialized orthopedic courses to help these Vets find civilian positions when they leave the military.
